Description

Modernists & Mavericks: Bacon, Freud, Hockney and the London Painters, by Martin Gayford

In this talk based on his new book of the same title, art critic Martin Gayford discusses the development of painting

in London from the Second World War to the 1970s, focusing on the story of interlinking friendships, shared experiences and artistic concerns among a number of acclaimed artists, including Frank Auerbach, Gillian Ayres, Francis Bacon, Lucian Freud, and David Hockney.

Drawing on first-hand interviews, he teases out the threads connecting these individual lives, and demonstrates how painting thrived against the backdrops of Soho bohemia in the 1940s and 50s and ‘Swinging London’ in the 1960s.

Tickets include wine and nibbles

A book signing and wine reception follow.

Talk presented in association with Art Fund.
